    Fingers crossed that there’s still “some good news” announced today as Zimbabwe mentioned last week:

    Interesting timing for lower bridge trouble (at least according to Metro alert)

    The ‘good news’ appears to be that they are finally starting the work, ‘on time’? This doesn’t seem like the good news they hyped, but literally just ‘we’re doing our job, properly, good news!’. I mean, they said this was gonna start in October at one point, so ‘good news’?

      Do folks like you ever tire of complaining?

        Not even remotely, when it’s my tax dollars at ‘work’. Do folks like you ever get tired of complaining about people complaining into a big old feedback loop of complaining?

        Not all of us blindly accept that stated goals such as dealing with an “emergency” are being treated according to their declared status. Not all of us blindly and unquestionably trust that the government is not working for personal agendas. Not all of us are happy with mediocre at best performance. 

Sorry, comment time is over.
